Pope Francis compares Christians to ISIS. A Limerick.

The Pope compares Christians with ISIS

The Catholic Church is in crisis.

Jesus said: Go in peace.

may disciples increase.

but ISIS an evil device is.

Pope Francis’ specific words, according to an English interpretation of his comments: “Today, I don’t think that there is a fear of Islam as such but of ISIS and its war of conquest, which is partly drawn from Islam. It is true that the idea of conquest is inherent in the soul of Islam. However, it is also possible to interpret the objective in Matthew’s Gospel, where Jesus sends his disciples to all nations, in terms of the same idea of conquest.”

The last 3 verses of the Gospel of Matthew states:1Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. 19 Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”

What was Jesus command? The Apostle John quotes Jesus in John 15: 12 My command is this: Love each other as I have loved you.

The command is not collective, but individual, a shared love, a giving love, and has nothing to do with socialism.

Nor did Jesus ever say: Let the Romans do it.

This is quite a contrast to the way of ISIS. They believe in total state control, under a Caliph.
